Hispanic journalists ban coverage of their open meeting

This is incredible:

A UNITY News reporter who had been assigned to live tweet the [National Association of Hispanic Journalists] board’s discussions was asked to stop reporting and to leave the room. The reporter sent out three messages on the social media network before she left and waited outside the meeting room, at the request of her editor.

Nadia Khan of UNITY News points out that “the incident further enflamed board critics’ existing concerns that the NAHJ leadership has lacked transparency during its two years in power.”
